In this week's Gospel of Mark, Jesus goes to great lengths to prepare for the Passover meal. He understood the significance of the event in remembering the covenant God made with the Israelites.
Jesus also understood His own destiny: that he would give of himself so that we may all have eternal life in heaven. This is the New Covenant which is central to the Christian faith.
What is your purpose; your destiny? Is your community a better place because you are there? What about your family and friends. Are they better people for having known you?
Like Jesus, we are called to live out our destiny; to show God's love to one another through our self-giving actions and words.
Like Jesus, our relationship with God will give us the strength we need to carry out our purpose.
